With more than 25 years of leadership and team development experience, Mark Cole has become a champion of The John C. Maxwell brand. His passion for leadership development and organizational growth make him uniquely qualified to add value to individual leaders and leadership teams. He has experience in both the non-profit and for profit sectors, and he has led companies through economic challenges, growth barriers, and disconnected team dynamics. These talents have led to Mark's integral role with the John Maxwell brand and his responsibility for stewarding John's assets in a variety of capacities.

Mark oversees all four of John’s business ventures and serves as the CEO of The John Maxwell Company, EQUIP, The John Maxwell Team and Maxwell Motivation.  Prior to his current roles, Mark held leadership positions in two additional Maxwell entities, INJOY/Maximum Impact and INJOY Stewardship Services.  In 2008, Mark launched his own consulting firm, the IRON League. 

Mark and his incredible wife, Stephanie, have two daughters, Tori and Maci, and a handsome grandson, Ryder. They reside in Atlanta, Georgia. When Mark is not leading, he spends his time, golfing, and snow skiing.
